Cappadocia Turkish Cuisine takes its name from the Cappadocia region of central Anatolia, a stunning landscape dotted with ancient volcanic chimney rocks and ruins of Bronze Age civilizations. The restaurant commemorates this region's rich cultural heritage with a menu of tender chicken kebabs, fluffy falafel, and savory grilled lamb. Diners begin their feasts with hot and cold mezzes such as baba ghanouj or cracked-wheat kibbeh, and end them with sweet desserts of honey-drizzled baklava pastries or oven-baked rice pudding. Main courses of eggplant moussaka and lamb-stuffed zucchini quell stomach rumblings, while lunches of gyro sandwiches and Turkish lamejun pizzas make for elegant midday feasts.
The dining space accents the Mediterranean meals with a charming, old-world flair. Padded leather booths surrounding linen-covered tables make for cozy perches, while walls pop with the color of tapestries and breathtaking panoramas of Anatolian highlands.
